Beer Revere: Summer Beer News
Look out for a bounteous month of beer this month; with a new brewery adding further cred to Sheffield’s ‘Beer Capital’ status – Neepsend Brew Co AND it’s that time for On the Edge Brew’s summer beer festival.
Operating from an existing unit in Neepsend the head honcho and manager from The Blake Hotel and Sheaf View (James and Gavin) have combined forces with The Wellington on Shalesmoor to create this offshoot brewery. A successful launch in June at The Sheaf showcased four beers; Blonde, NPA, IPA and Stout. The balanced New Zealand pale ale (4.2%) shone out with the use of Pacific Jade, Chinook and Simcoe hops in the brew making for a decidedly good, smooth and thirst quenching beer with pine and citrus notes. It’ll be exciting to see what direction this new brewery heads in; nip over to their pubs in Heeley and Walkley to sample their delights.
On the other side of the River Sheaf nano-brewery On the Edge Brew will be hosting their summer ‘9 Pin’ beer festival at the Old Junior School, South View Road on 18th July. Tom and Lu will be providing 9 unique beers on the day and work by the ethos once it’s gone, it’s gone. Which means, get down early, if you’d like to try all 9 beers!
